For the eighth time, here we are, standing again on the stage of Byblos International Festival. This year, we have prepared a music and dance show “Nasri w Philemon Fil Bal”, not just for the purpose of honouring or paying tribute to them, since in reality, we are not really fond of such things.
Honouring and paying tribute is a one time thing that is immediately forgotten, while reminiscence and remembrance is a daily act, through which you travel back in time with nostalgia to beautiful moments that are now gone and you wish to relive, even for one second.
Time is nihility running towards the unknown and the end. Memories are the only thing that remains, memories of the people who have engraved our mind with their timeless works, we still hear every day of our lives.

D’ori­gine polo­naise, M. Pokora ou Matt Pokora (de son vrai nom Matthieu Tota) est né le 26 septembre 1985 à Stras­bourg. Au lycée Aris­tide Briand à Shil­ti­gheim (banlieue de Stras­bourg), il passe déjà plus de temps à écrire des morceaux qu’à suivre les cours. En 2003, l’émis­sion de télé­réa­lité Pops­tars, diffu­sée sur la chaîne M6, lui permet de se faire un nom. Membre du boys band Linkup, son groupe sort gagnant. “Mon Etoile”, leur single produit dans la foulée, est un hit. Leur premier album Notre Etoile, connaît un succès plus mitigé malgré la sortie d’un second single. Quelques mois plus tard, les membres du groupe l’an­noncent offi­ciel­le­ment: ils se séparent.
